Word from a saint



WORD FROM A SAINT
==================

O my dear ,do not be afraid
Sleep here in this frosty night
With my thin fabric of compassion
I will offer you lot of heat to bear

When I saw you the first time
You looked like a worried dove
Your body clock was running fast
As tense hare needs a peace at last

Your heart fluttered with fear
Your eyes were flowing passionate tears
Your hands were looking for pure connection
Your tired head was seeking the godly protection

Rapist can not enter in this saintly room
Nobody can touch your virginity here
You are safe in this divine waiting hall
This night will carry you to the morning star
